Details of Conor Walsh Album Announced


Details of the release of new music by much missed Mayo artist Conor Walsh has been announced.

Called “an album for his fans”, The Lucid will be released on double-sided vinyl on the third anniversary of his death, on Monday, March 11, with pre-sales available via Bandcamp rom February 14.

Side A of the album, we’re told, contain acoustic melodies, while Side B comprises electronic material. The stripped-back release was inspired by composers including Hauschka, Aphex Twin and Nils Frahm.

Conor’s sister, Fiona Walsh, who helped to bring the project together said: “This album is for his fans and by creating this album with his close friend and mentor – Enda Bates who was the producer of Conor’s first EP The Front, and Rob Farhat who previously worked with Conor – we wanted to remind people of all the different aspects of Conor; as a brother, friend, composer, and artist. The subtle approach to this album will leave his fans in awe of his simplistic beauty.”
